My 1st Class was on Monday, 8 am..of course nobody would like to come to any class such early in the morning. So, on that morning, I've 7 student out of 29 in my class. conducting a pop quiz did came across my mind, but since they had just returned from their practical, i shelved my intention for later session. After 3 months of spending their time as practical trainees, i think they would probably want to spend some time together with their family for at least two or three days before returning to campus.
So far, my students were ok. I actually want to develop a two-way communication in my class. Some said 'to be a lecturer you just have to be syok sendiri', meaning to say all you need to do is just stand there speak up like everybody's listening to you. But, I don't want to be that type of lecturer. I want my student to actively engaged during the session in my class. That was what I did. Luckily, they agreed to participate. We shared ideas and thought. So far from the 1st class I think i managed to attract my students' attention even though it was still early in the morning. How about next class? we'll see!!
